Judicial Commission Recommendations to First Presbytery

  • First Presbytery received the following one page document as information in January 2017. Months later (July 2017) Presbytery dealt with the issues raised, in that document, by means of a sermon and a prayer. Later that day, I was suspended from ministry; yet the matters which are listed on that page, are the very matters, regarding spiritual abuse, about which I became a whistleblower. The fear which is mentioned, there, is real. It prevents members of First Presbytery from openly dealing with obvious and frequent abuse of spiritual authority. I was found innocent of the charge of bearing false witness; so why is nothing done about these things? Fear. Fear is the reason - and for good reason - look at me, I am deposed, unemployed, and the ARP Church I pastored was closed.

ARP Whistleblower

My name is Scott Robar. Another ARP whistleblower, told me in June 2017, that I needed to either submit to two ARP ministers and an elder, or leave the ARP denomination.  He was giving me a helpful warning; but I didn't submit to them, nor did I leave. So I was deposed from ministry - my ordination was removed. I'll leave the three years of prior struggle out of this for now; but hundreds of pages of evidence can be easily uploaded to this site, along with audio recordings, if needed. In addition to being deposed, the church that I pastored was closed. I had told that other whistleblower that the three men (mentioned above) were at the center of my three year struggle; and he replied saying, "Those three men run First Presbytery.” Hence, the warning to submit to them or leave. That other whistleblower's website is ARPTalk.com. He has been expressing his opinions, regarding individuals involved in the ARP's college and seminary for nearly ten years. While few things could be more contrary to Presbyterian polity than for three men to run a Presbytery (btw the very largest ARP Presbytery), this fellow whistleblower has refuesd to join me in addressing this. He has publicly attempted to shame many others; so I doubt that I will hear any complaint from him about this. Additionally, the elder, mentioned earlier, was the ARPTalk webmaster and comment screener for several years). Most of all, I  pray that my appeal and my complaint against First Presbytery will be taken seriously, and not underhandedly dismissed, as the complaints against First Presbytery were dismissed, at last year's ARP Synod.
